FIA GT- Lots of points at Zolder for AF Corse

Maranello, 22 April
Second round of the season for the FIA GT1 World Championship and the European FIA GT3 at Zolder, Belgium this weekend, with the AF Corse team competing in both series. In the FIA GT3, Gaetano Ardagna and Giuseppe Ciro took an amazing double at the wheel of the Italian team’s Ferrari 458 GT3, being the absolute dominant force at this event. Stefano Gai and Michael Lyons in the second AF car, got an equally good result: in Race 1 they took the chequered flag in third, while the second race saw them finish fifth, bringing home more valuable championship points. After this round in Belgium, Ardagna-Ciro lead the drivers’ table comfortably on 69 points with Gai-Lyons third on 58, while the Amato Ferrari run squad heads the team table on 128 points.

A good points haul for AF Corse, third in the team table in the FIA GT1 World Championship, thanks to a third place for Filip Salaquarda and Toni Vilander in the World Championship Race, which gave the duo the chance to make up for finishing only 13th in the Qualifying Race on Saturday, which was badly affected by rain. The second AF Corse crew in the FIA GT1 series, Franceso Castellacci and Enzo Ide, finished the first leg seventh. It was not a bad result given they had to pit on the formation lap. In the Championship Race, the duo finished eleventh, after a collision with another car, just as they were on their out lap after the pit stop. Castellacci was driving at the time and nevertheless managed to continue and was one of the quickest on track during his stint. The next round for both championships takes place on 6 May at Navarra in Spain.
